Gaming Performance: 1440p

In our Ryzen 7000 series review, we saw users commenting about testing games for CPU reviews at 1440p, so we have duly obliged here. Those interested in 1440p performance with minimal image quality – particularly the esports crowd – will be glad to know that we will be testing at this resolution going forward into 2023 and beyond.

We are using DDR5 memory on the Ryzen 7 78000X3D and the other Ryzen 7000 series we've tested. This also includes Intel's 13th and 12th Gen processors. We tested the aforementioned platforms with the following settings:

  • DDR5-5600B CL46 - Intel 13th Gen
  • DDR5-5200 CL44 - Ryzen 7000
  • DDR5-4800 (B) CL40 - Intel 12th Gen

All other CPUs such as Ryzen 5000 and 3000 were tested at the relevant JEDEC settings as per the processor's individual memory support with DDR4.

Moving up to 1440p, the Ryzen 7 7800X3D still delivers excellent performance, although the focus shifts more towards the graphics card than the CPU. It performs consistently well and, in most cases, even slightly outperforms the Ryzen 9 7950X3D, especially in games like Borderlands 3 and Hitman 3. The Ryzen 7 7800X3D also excels against other competitors that can take advantage of its large 96 MB L3 cache. In these scenarios, the 7800X3D emerges as the clear winner. Overall, the Ryzen 7 7800X3D continues to impress even at 1440p.

    Hello, Is there anyway to force windows scheduler to utilize the preferred processors, in my case identified via Ryzen Master as C02 & C06 of 8 on an AMD 7800x3d. Using CPU-Z it shows that Windows 11 is using C01, which runs at 5012mhz @ 62 degrees C (658 score in CPU-z). Pretty good, using highest Expo settings in BIOS, however it seems that C02 or C06 would be much better. All Cores run at around 4866mhz around 82 degrees C (7377 score in CPU-z). I've tried using the balanced power mode and others, which don't seem to change much aside from lowering the all cores score to 7348 and increase the single core to 660. Any comments or solutions appreciated.

    Utilize the preferred cores is what I meant to type, not preferred processors.
